I would think that the broken hips would result from slips and falls when the snow is not shoveled.

It is though a well known fact that heart attacks and reports of angina increase after a heavy snowfall.

Hubby and I emigrated in our mid 50's too.

The only downside to age, is that from a psychological perspective, many of your values and ethics are quite fixed and it can be hard to adapt into a completely different culture.

And to echo what someone else said, if it all goes pear shaped, you have less working years to re-coup the high cost of immigration. We reckon our failed 'adventure' has cost in the region of £50k.

But going into something with your eyes wide open does help.

Good luck.

We are older than you are, we are going in April this year. We are young at heart and willing to try new things. There are only two of us and our two dogs. I am 57 now, my wife is some other age but younger.

We are going to Moncton New Brunswick. We are both excited, my wife is worried about driving on the other side of the road but is going to take lessons to get used to it. We will be working and starting a dog grooming, kennel, doggy day care business along with other things.

We have a freind who is planning to go to college in Moncton next year, he is 41 when he gets there. Where are you going?

Wish you the best of luck, we have been to Alberta but not BC. I hear it is one of the best destinations. A bit expensive for us though. Hope you have a great life there.
